Or… I broke my foot taking off my pants.
I change my clothes and shoes to care for our chickens. I don’t want to contaminate their living space (or ours) with anything yucky. I change next to the washer in the garage. This is usually uneventful except during cold weather: I struggle with my layers (the clothing not the chickens). When it was cold last week I was pulling off my outer layer of pants, got stuck on my socks, tripped over the small concrete step, and broke my foot.
I will be in a sandal-style boot for 4-6 weeks. I hope to be off the crutches much sooner than that. Thankfully, my husband and step-daughter are here to do most of the chicken caregiving!
